is to stop the firing. we left gaza, we don't want to reenter. >> in this particular case, the timing is very curious. it's right after the u.s. elections are over, president obama made a deal, gave israel iron dome and then all of a sudden, there's no incursion into gaza. right after our elections are done, all of a sudden on november 8 a two week lull in violence is broken by israel when they shoot and kill a 12-year-old boy. you might say it's an accident. every time a civilian is killed, israel says it's an accident. there's an awful lot of accidents. then there was a ceasefire and in this case, israel broke the ceasefire by killing jubarek. why did israel start the aggression november 8 and break the ceasefire? >> there have been three ceasefires in the last month all violated by the terror groups. egypt mediated quietly to bring quiet to the region. three times in the last month and there have been 300 rockets fired at israel within the last month from inside gaza. every time we try to reach a ceasefire with hamas, it was violated from their side. we don't want the rocket fire. we'd be
, if you will, to the obama situation on what is happening on the west bank and gaza, i think there will be pressure. this will be pressure from egypt. there will be pressure from turkey and qatar, the three countries that are the most sympathetic to hamas, because don, i think the fear is warranted. it is not the last time we'll see the conflict between israel and the palestinians. hamas is leading the palestinian people to ruin, hamas must be seen to be a rogue regime. because it is under the palestinian national authority. >> i want to go back to something you said about the president's indifference. do you think it would behoove the president to get involved and trying to solve this crisis? is it even possible to find a solution in the next four years? that question is really asked of every president. >> i think you're absolutely right, from truman, if you want the history, to george bush, people talked about solving the crisis. president obama actually kind of turned away from the region, from the conflict. but now there is noise to do what he can do in the second adminis
in the middle east. this situation is heating up between israel and the leadership in gaza. what's your sense how this affects what president obama has to do? >> let's be clear, it's not really a war. israel will win. it's a very lop-sided war. on one hand you have the most popular military machine in the middle east, on the other side you have the inhabitants of gaza who have weapons that can't do very much. what's the long term strategy? what are they going to do about gaza? they have tried to economically choke it off. it didn't work. they have tried to kind of military operation before, once including a ground invasion. didn't really work. where are they going here? and that's where the united states can be helpful. >> fareed zakaria, always a pleasure to see you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you, ali. >>> warren buffett has to go shopping. maybe he'll offer up his . last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. [ male announcer ] and
and the u.s. now? >> if you look at the whole foreign policy portfolio that obama is facing, not just the problem in gaza, but we still have the problem with pakistan, iran, egypt and libya is still not a stable situation. i think it only amplifies the problem that this is a really dangerous world, and i think part of obama's struggle in the coming months and year is going to get some hold on exactly what our policies are, what is the degree of toughness that we are going to employ because i think that's still in doubt. >> let's turn to benghazi. congressional committees held a flurry of closed-door hearings this week. what did we learn about administration actions before, during and after the attack? >> well, we are hearing a whole range of interesting excuses as to why we had these different comments in the beginning, about whether or not this was the video, whether or not this was a terrorist attack. you have now heard this argument that maybe it was a hybrid that's correct there was actually initially a protest in cairo but this inspired the militants to arc. in benghazi you also
